The long-awaited, very popular '55 classic pedal cars have arrived and are ready to ship!
The 55's now have an improved steering system, a new pedal mechanism
and an improved perimeter frame. These changes help to make the 55's
have smoother steering, a sturdier frame and overall just more solid.

Red/White. Also, the seat padding on all of the 55's is now a very
attractive dark brown. These changes have been made to improve the
quality of our 55 Classics but still keep them cost effective. We know
you will like them as much as we do. If you want one of these under your Christmas tree this year, you better place your order now!

David Ludwig, director of Optimal Weight for Life Program at
Children's Hospital in Boston, said parents must take control within the home.
1.Stock up on good food
Fill your house with foods that are both delicious & nutritious (fruits,
vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans, fish, lean protein, reduced-fat dairy
products) & don't bring home junk food (cookies, cakes, sweetened cereals
& sugary drinks).
2.Make sweets a treat
Save treats for special occasions. You don't have to give up sweets entirely,
but go out for them instead of having them at home.
3.Ditch the drive-through
Avoid fast food. A study showed overweight teens consume about 400 more
calories on a day when they consume fast food compared with a day in which they
4.Turn off the TV
Make physical activity the focus of the home instead of television. No TV in
the kitchen or bedrooms.
5.Equip for exercise
Give children the basic tools to be active: jump ropes, balls, Frisbees.
Encourage them to dance, an excellent activity. When they are having fun, they
are not thinking about it as exercise.

First lady Michelle Obama, at a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, called obesity an epidemic and one of the greatest threats to our healthy and economy. She has launched a major initiative to combat this problem in childhood. Her Let's Move campaign involves the government working with local communities to provide more nutritious food in school, allow more opportunities for kids to be physically active and give more communities access to affordable, healthful food.
Statistics show 32% of children are obese or overweight. Almost 20% of children ages 6-11 and 18% of those ages 12-19 are obese. Such children are at greater risk for weight-related health problems and have an increased chance of becoming obese adults.
These numbers are startling, to say the least. We wish Mrs. Obama much success in her new initiative. Of course, healthy habits start at home. We, as parents, should all be working on forming good habits at home to benefit our children and their future, as well as the future of the U.S.

Our most requested Authentic (Velocity) Pedal Fire Truck FFT101 is coming soon! Many of you have asked when we'd
have the new firetruck in stock and we're happy to inform you that they are
right around the corner. As many of you know, the past model was discontinued and a new unit was redesigned with a new manufacturer. The new
firetruck will be better quality with a more updated design. We will also
have a battery-operated version of this same firetruck available for this
holiday period which will be of 12V power! We will provide all the
details/specs of these two new fire trucks over the coming weeks. We
expect the pedal fire engine to arrive no later than Oct. 31st and
the battery operated fire truck to arrive no later than Nov. 15th. The water spraying feature was removed from this new model
since the water components on the last unit were the #1 reason for customer
complaints. We do plan on having a backpack water sprayer that can be
bundled with this item. Once we get specifics on delivery dates for this
item we will let you know.

According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, conducted by the National Institute of Health there are now more than 12 million obese and overweight children in the United States. This statistic has more than doubled over the last twenty years! Obesity has put children at risk for serious problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and psychological and social problems.
Fortunately, parents can take steps to engage energetically in the cause to prevent this epidemic from growing by exercising together as a family. University of Michigan exercise physiologist Dr. Audrey Hazekamp suggests parents teach their children by example, by getting up and making exercise fun. Doing so will keep the whole family physically and emotionally healthier. Sharing physical activities with your kids isn't just a good way to get your heart pumping and burn calories, it's a great way to build family bonds. When you exercise together as a family, you are creating memories your child will treasure and studies show children are more likely to exercise if you make it part of there everyday lives. Ensuring your child will grow up to be a healthy adult is one of the greatest gifts you can give to them.
Improve the "strength" of your family and make the conscious decision to be a positive role model for your children by beginning and enjoying family workout time. This can include anything from riding bikes together to stepping outside for a walk while your child rides his tricycle or pedal car. I tend to get my exercise just from chasing the kids around on their ride-on toys. The kids love to switch from tricycle to scooter to pedal car. They don't consider their playing exercise, but fun!
We are happy to announce that the very popular All Chrome Pedal Plane is arriving approx. 11/20/08 and we are now taking pre-orders. MANY of you have been inquiring about this adorable plane. We have been waiting for its return for well over a year! We strongly recommend placing your order now before they are gone!

We have just added two classic pedal fire trucks to our site. Many of you have been inquiring about antique-style pedal cars as well as more firetrucks. Well, you asked and we listened. Check out the antique Limited Edition Pedal Fire Truck as well as the Deluxe Pedal Fire Truck. These will not last long, especially with the holidays just right around the corner.
Kids' ride on toys are great purchases. You will find them cute and adorable, durable and strong, actually usable by your children and grandkids, and very low-maintenance. Furthermore, it never hurts to have a nostalgic item in your household. But that is getting ahead of the story.
Kids' ride on toys have a rich history stretching as far back as the 1890s, when the Daimler was sold. Pedal cars were often the exact miniature replica of the real cars on the road, from their front grilles to the rear fenders. The pedal car is as much an icon as its full-sized counterpart, especially the Model T and the roadster models.
You can be part of this rich history when you own a pedal car. Just make sure that the model you choose has a history of its own worthy of telling your grandkids.
If you are lucky to find an antique pedal car today, you will be treated to working horns and lights, clear windshields, movable ragtops, exquisite chrome detailing, delicate hood ornaments, and white wall tires set in an all-steel body with a custom paint job. Two words - iconic cool!
You can display kids' ride on toys under the Christmas tree, or in its own special case in the living room, or in the library, or anywhere you want. It is a fantastic addition to your collection and to your decor!
With their exquisite details and glossy finishes, complemented by opening hoods and trunks and even detailed engines on older models, kids' ride on toys are fast becoming collectors' items. And who would not want one of their own? It is very beautiful item of the past, which has value in these automobile-crazy times.
Did you know that old models of pedal cars in good condition sell for as much as $2,000 on the market? This is not to say that you should sell for the money but pedal cars are an investment, too.
Trip Down Memory Lane
Pedal cars take you down memory lane. They are nostalgic reminders of younger, happier, more carefree times when you can put the top down, go on full speed, savor the wind on your hair and imagine that you are across the country when all you really crossed was the neighborhood street.
Legacy for Generations
Because of the durable construction, in olden days from steel and in modern days from molded plastic, kids' ride on toys can be passed from one generation to the next. With proper care and storage, you can witness the joy of riding pedal cars from yourself to your grandkids. In a sense, you have preserved a legacy of enjoyment and fun.
If these reasons are not enough to convince you to own a kids ride on toys, then the sheer pleasure of looking at a perfect miniature of your dream cars - a Ferrari F430, a 1932 Roadster, a 1965 Mustang, and a 1965 Shelby GT-350 perhaps - at a very small fraction of the full-sized cars' cost should do the trick. At least then you can boast of having a garage of your dream cars!

- A child should stand flat-footed on the floor and straddle the bike.
- At that point, the child should have a minimum of 2" clearance between their inseam and the top bar of the bike's frame. If there is no top cross bar on the bike's structure, the same 2" rule should apply while imagining a bar in place.
- The following general guidelines can also be used as a reference when determining the right size bike for a child, dependent on age and height:
- Ages 1½ to 4 (26" tall to 38" tall) = 10" and 12" bikes

There has been a lot of media coverage recently about unsafe toys from China. We'd like you to know that all of our toys are inspected and certified to pass all applicable toy safety standards, including lead based paint. Our distributors are in contact with the factories that make our cars on a regular basis and have the test results that show that the paint materials are tested and do comply.
If you follow the financial news you may also be aware that the currency valuation between the US dollar and the Chinese RMB has been very unfavorable. The resulting exchange rate has caused one of our distributors to slightly increase prices of their pedal cars, including the very popular Speedster Fire Truck. The increase in crude oil prices has also caused the ocean freight to increase dramatically. New prices will be posted and take effect November 1st for all retailers carrying these items. Because of the coming holidays, it may be worthwhile for you to order now!
The below pedal cars affected by the price change (Prices shown will slightly change November 1, 2007):
Also, we have lowered prices on many popular Injusa, Toys Toys, and Big battery-powered vehicles and pedal ride-on toys. Be sure to check them out. Our popular Toys Toys (aka Berchet) battery-operated ride-on toys that have been out of stock will be in stock by the end of this month, so watch for them. They will not last, especially with the Christmas holiday just around the corner.
